Sand & Gravel
Posted 04 June 2008 - 10:08 AM
A friend has suggested that I leave a layer of gravel in the bottom and add sand to the top of this and as it sinks it will prevent compacting. Will this work, or should I change to 100% sand? Also what's the best way to care for the sand to stop any of the unpleasantness, and is it true that I can buy silicone sand from builders or Toys R Us?

I have sand in all my tanks and never have any problems. The trick is to keep only a thin layer - 2cm is plenty.
The only issue may be if you have lots of plants. I keep only floating plants or plants attached to wood.
I've also seen people keep plants in pots.
